A day in Ghent

We made a last minute decision to stop somewhere before going to Paris as the news was reporting thunder storms and bad flooding in the French capital (the bad weather appears to be following us around!). Instead of spending 4 nights as we had originally planned, we decided to cut it down to just 2 and instead go to Ghent in Belgium. Having only 1 full day we tied to pack in as much as we could. As it was only a brief stop, I will let the photos do the talking.
